A new development providing 87 affordable homes for rent in Hemel Hempstead has been unveiled by Hightown Housing Association.
Peregrine Close, Hightown’s latest affordable housing development in Hemel Hempstead, is another addition to the almost 2,000 homes Hightown manages in Dacorum. It provides 87 one-and two-bedroom apartments across four blocks, surrounding a central courtyard and a children’s play area.
47 of the homes have been allocated to residents who were on the local authority’s waiting list and the remaining 40 to local people for intermediate rent which will help residents saving up for a deposit as rent is set at 80 per cent of the market rate.
The development was constructed by contractors, Thomas Sinden, and the architects were PRP.
The land was formerly an office block known as Viking House. It was bought by Hightown in 2014.
Peregrine Close is located between Redbourn Road and Swallowdale Lane, with easy access to the town centre by public transport or a short drive to the motorway and surrounding areas such as St Albans. A cycle and footpath also links to the cycle path along the former railway line, known as ‘The Nickey’.
